Naomi & Mischa

Looking in: Moonee Ponds, Williamstown, Pascoe Vale South, Newport, Maidstone, Niddrie, Brunswick West, Essendon, Footscray, Yarraville

We're on the hunt for a few amazing humans to team up with to share life, food and laughter in the north/west/north-western suburbs of Melbourne. Hoping to kick off a new lease any time from July 8 onwards. ABOUT US: Mischa (hubby) is 26 and is an Air Traffic Controller at Tulla airport. He reads economics and finance books for fun and he can have a conversation with anybody about anything. So he's the brains of this operation! I'm Naomi, 23, in transition right now between work and study. I've been an early childhood educator but I’m now returning to my life-long dream: to study everything humanities at university. So I'll be studying full time as of this coming semester. I'm also a writer. And I love cooking and hosting big, messy, delicious, happy dinners for everybody. We’ve been married 3 ½ years and have no kids or pets. We've been sharehousing for 2+ years. We have rental references available. We like to be friends with our housemates, not just strangers sharing a house! That being said, we need our privacy and down time as much as anyone, and respect others' space. We don't own a TV. You are welcome to bring one with you, but please don't be one of those people who has it turned on all the time (even if it is on mute). That's a deal breaker for us! ABOUT THE (theoretical, not-yet-existent) HOUSE: This is a house where... … everyone works together to foster a friendly, honest, open, supportive culture ...you can invite friends over for a meal or a beer, but in a way that respects other's needs. (If you know another housemate is doing 6am shifts all week, it wouldn't be fair to have people over partying until midnight.) ...housies know a bit about each other's lives and what others are working through, or towards, and are there to provide friendship and conversation when somebody needs to vent or laugh or brainstorm …you feel free to go into hibernation mode and escape from the world and housemates when you need private down time, and the other housemates respect that ...everyone pitches in in equal amounts to maintain the house to a standard that makes living there a pleasant experience for all. That means being willing to clean the bathroom, or take out the bins or wash those few extra dishes that aren't yours. ABOUT YOU: - Australian citizen or permanent resident (for rent contract security) - At least 2 rental references - Looking for a minimum 6-month lease - Employed with a reliable income - Absolutely non-smoker and no illicit drugs - Reliable rent payer - Interested in building into the culture of the house Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to catch up for a cuppa and a chat! EDIT TO ADD: We think we might have just found our dream house. SO. MANY. BEDROOMS. Applications aren't open yet, but we are ready to pounce! Get in touch if you want to live in an INCREDIBLE house in Maidstone, just a few minutes' bus ride from the train station which is 20 minutes into the city!

Jazia

Looking in: Melbourne, Moonee Ponds, Parkville, Clifton Hill, Brunswick, Ascot Vale, Footscray

(Moving from Adelaide - looking for work; if anyone knows of anything please help a sister out! Thank you) I study on line so full time work is cool with me! I'm big music lover, loves to sing in the shower hahah, I can somewhat cook. I listen to all genres. I'm up for a dance, to get down and boogie. I'm pretty chill, to just kick it with others. As long as there's equal cleaning, or just simply cleaning after yourself, we cool.

Mick

Looking in: North Melbourne, Kensington, Moonee Ponds, Yarraville, Essendon, Maribyrnong, Ascot Vale, Footscray

Hey guys, I'm Mick. I'm 28. I just started a new full time retail job in South Melb. I'm pretty laid back and like to think I can get along with pretty much anyone. I play bass in a band, but noise won't be in an issue. I clean up after myself and am happy to help out with cooking and general house duties. Not a massive 'partier' - my social outings these days usually revolve around going to catch live music/bands. If there's any other questions, feel free to get in touch. Cheers!

Peter

Looking in: Kensington, Seddon, North Melbourne, Yarraville, Footscray

I am looking for a furnished room in a share house to call home for 3 months while on FIFO in Melbourne. I am a Brisbane based engagement consultant and will be coming and going throughout my stay. Ideally I'd like to live with like-minded and easy going young professionals who don't mind a bit of banter and a beer. Good public transport connections to Footscray and the city are a must! Please note that the move date is an estimate.

Lina

Looking in: Seddon, Parkville, Kensington, Fitzroy, Brunswick, Flemington, Ascot Vale, Collingwood, Yarraville, Prahran, Richmond, Footscray

Hi I'm Lina and I'm looking to relocate to the inner suburbs. Not too picky as to where as long as it's within walking distance to trains/trams and grocery shops. Somewhere nice to walk nearby (eg. park, river, beach) would be a bonus! I am currently working regular hours in admin, but will be a studying full-time at RMIT starting in July and hoping to make that a priority. I tend to hibernate in my room with books/movies/video games in my free time and prefer to take my socialising outside so I make a quiet housemate. That's not to say I wouldn't enjoy a good chat or hanging out together now and then! I'm fond of art (both seeing and making), music (I've learned the value of headphones early on, don't worry) and animals (none of my own but if you've got them - fantastic!). I like to cook, but only have the motivation for it 2-3 times a week so I won't hog the kitchen too often. I'm neat, respectful of other people's things and personal space, pro-equal-distribution-of-chores and I've never been late on rent in my 5+ years of shared living. My move-in date is negotiable if I find a room/housemates I really like, but I do have to give a 1-months notice at my current place and paying 2 rents at once would really test my budget. Please let me know if you think you have a place for me :)

Chloe

Looking in: Northcote, Spotswood, Brunswick, Footscray, Yarraville, North Melbourne, Richmond

I'm from Melbourne and am currently on a leave of absence from post grad studies while I replenish the bank balance...not sure when I'll return to the student life at this stage :-) I love discovering new music and listen to all sorts of genres - pop, rock, classical and just about everything in between. I also really enjoy reading, hanging out with friends and musing on life, the universe and everything. I am a total nerd for all things to do with science, history and politics. I'm an easy going housemate and really enjoy living in a relaxed environment with people who I can share the odd wine and plenty of laughs with. I want to find a place which I can call home!

Harry

Looking in: Northcote, Coburg, Thornbury, Flemington, Ascot Vale, Fitzroy North, Brunswick, Footscray

Hey all! A little about me - I'm 22 (I don't consider myself an old soul but you know, thought I'd drop a line anyway), I currently work full time as a hairdressing apprentice (free cuts 4 everyone once I learn) I've lived in Melbourne for about 5 years now, my lease is ending at my current place and I've decided it's time for a fresh start and to meet some new people. I'm a bit of a homebody through the week as I work long hours, but I am always down for wine and dinner and a chat to wind down at the end of the day. Definitely down for a beer or 9 on the weekends. I'm super clean and tidy, and very respectful of everyones space. I'm really looking to move somewhere I can call home, not about another short stay. Would love to come by and meet everyone and have a cup of tea if you think I sound like a match! Chat soon Harry

Hey Guys, I'm looking for somewhere where I can set up shop with some rad individuals hopefully around the listed areas, but open to suggestions. Originating from Brisbane I am a pretty chilled out guy, big pet lover (with no pets) house trained so you can expect all the good stuff of a quality housemate, Rugby fella with the addition of occasional sporadic furniture making, Friday afternoon drinks and my complied list of the best beer and burger combos in Melbourne (subjectively opinionated) Currently working in fire prevention (Mon-Fri) while looking to further within the industry. I am always down for a hang and will often grab my camera and go on an adventure until I get lost But eventually find myself back home with some pretty wicked stories. I'd love to hear about you if you think I might be a good fit :) Otherwise good luck with the hunt!
